Summer culture in the capital will be restored this weekend in a sculpture garden.

Jazz in the Garden will host foreign concerts every Friday, May 20 through July 22.

“We made a few acronyms last year but since the summer of 2019, this is our full season,” Damon Reeves, head of art at the National Gallery of Education, told WT. “This is a DC facility. It’s been a favorite event for over 20 years, so we’re really looking forward to getting it back in full form.”

Concerts are free but you must register at noon one Friday before each concert. This Friday’s event has already been sold, Rev said.

Outdoor food is allowed for your vacation, and there will be food supplies at Pavilion Cafe, but you will not be able to bring in alcohol. “We will have drinks, including the famous sangria,” said Reves. “We want it to be relaxed and fun.”

“It’s Friday night,” Raves said. “It’s a little more relaxed; you’re on your way to the weekend. The next day is a good night without pressure to enter the office.

The sculpture garden is on the north side of the National Mall. Entrances are 7th Street Northwest, 9th Street and Constitution Avenue Northwest, and Madison Drive Northwest.

To give time for the concert days, the sculpture garden will be closed from 4 to 5 p.m., then the doors will open at 5 pm and concerts will begin at 6 p.m.

Music shows range from jazz to Afro-Cuban and bluegrass. Revs is especially excited about Afro-Cuban drummer Pedrito Martinez on June 3, Grammy-nominated Hawaiian contemporary musician Daniel Ho on June 10 and Tromboniist Delfeio Marsalis, part of the famous Marsalis family, July 1.
